330 ml bottle. Rated @ 26.6.2009.
Pours a black colour with a small off-white head. Roasted malts on the nose, nothing else. Flavour of very roasted malts, mild caramel and coffee. Medium bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Not as good as the Draught version.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - JUN 19, 2010
Niente a che vedere con la spina, questa è una brodaglia sgasata che non ricorda minimamente la vera Guinness.

Vaiz (4258) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour, foamy tan head that leaves lacing. Aroma of bread, licorice, roasted malts and some sugars. Flavor is dry and spicy, somewhat ashy, lots of roasted malts and still a bit watery. Watery texture and average carbonation. Nice brew.

Bottle (33cl) bb 05/09/10, Pours dark ruby red, with a large, foamy, tan head. Roasted aroma, with touches of (salty) liquorice. Taste is lightly bitter, roasted, with a hint of salty liquorice. Finish is quite dry, with a moderate lasting bitter. Nothing fancy, but a very nice easy drinking stout.

culchiem (3511) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2011 Draught in Kennedys Bar Copenhagen. This beer needs to be treated with respect by the bar. If not it is a very unpleasant experience. You need to find a bar with a good flow on the tap an cleans their lines regularly. They are hard enough to find but Kennedys is definately one. No beer in the world looks better with it’s jet black body and creamy head. Every mouthfull should leave a ring on the side of the glass. Not as creamy as the Guinness in Ireland but still a fine beer when done well

Bottle in the Czech Republic. Really dark, bottom fermented lager with a dark foam, but it will not last long. Excellent taste. It seems identical to that sold in Ireland.
